OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Thunder said Wednesday that forward Kevin Durant will miss at least a week with a strained left hamstring.

Durant was injured during the second quarter of a 125-101 victory at Washington on Tuesday night. He will be re-evaluated in seven to 10 days.

Durant has averaged 28.1 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.25 blocks to help lead the Thunder and new coach Billy Donovan to a 5-3 start.

Durant was injury free for most of his career and was league MVP in 2013-14 before he ran into problems. He broke a bone in his right foot last preseason, had three procedures on it and played in only 27 games as the Thunder missed the playoffs.

Russell Westbrook, last season’s scoring champion, will again be called on to step up.
